Remind me about this....My hair is dropping out!

Post baby - 4 months ago now. Periods not returned yet but hair just started falling out. What does it mean about my hormones?

And I'm booked to have hair dyed tomorrow...would you do it when hair all dropping out?!!

When you're pregnant your hair stops falling out, so at some point after your baby is born all that hair that didn't fall out during pregnancy, does. No idea about colouring your hair though.. you need someone wiser than me.

Doesn't mean anything unusual about hormones (or AFAIK, have any relation to periods), just another charming side effect of pregnancy. Find the best conditioner you can so you don't pull more out when combing...mine was pink tub of kerastase stuff. Then just wait it out, nothing else to do - its funny how you can be pleased by having little tufty bits when it starts growing back later though smile!

and I don't think having hair dyed will make a difference either way (see if your hairdresser has a different view of course)!
